Still not working for me :shrug:

Just got back from the cinema. Old people and babies shouldn't be allowed at the cinema. My screening was full of old people and the two idiots in front of me and behind me decided to have conversations amongst themselves whenever an actor was first seen (OOH JAMIE LEE CURTIS! THAT'S JAMIE LEE CURTIS!) or when a secret was going to be revealed or hinted at. STFU IDIOTS. No consideration for anyone else's experience, selfish useless idiots.

My favourite annoying twat in the cinema experience was 2 months ago when I was watching Vitalina Varela. Some big guy sitting two rows in front of me was tilting his head side to side literally every 5 seconds, and so the guy behind him had to keep adjusting to it, he seemed pretty annoyed but didn't say anything for the whole two hours. Wouldn't like to be in his place but I thought it was hilarious, and provided some entertainment in a film completely deprived of it.

idk if this is new info or not. It's the first time I'm hearing about the tier pricing and content for NBC's future streaming site.

Peacock will offer three pricing tiers. The most basic option, Peacock Free, will feature some NBCUniversal content accompanied by commercials. The next level, Peacock Premium, will give users access to a more robust library of ad-supported content for $4.99 a month. Premium users can also upgrade to an ad-free experience for roughly $10 a month.


It sounds a little like Hulu before Hulu cut off the free option. I guess I'll check out the free option after it launches.

I’m sitting in the cinema to see Little Women, I haven’t see a cinema this full except at film festivals and there are like 3 guys, including my boyfriend. Never seen so many women in one place.

Little ones and big ones :whistling:

I asked my bf if he felt weird about being there and he said he did at first and thought ‘Is this what women feel like?’ And I was like yep welcome to my world lol. I rarely see another women at the cinema, and never one by themselves.

Neither of us liked the film much. I’m giving it a 5 and he’s set on a 4 though thinks it may deserve an extra point for the colours/set design/costuming, which was the only part of it we did like. My bf did think Timothee Chalomet was cute though, I don’t think we share taste in men lol.

I said he was a bit young for me, boyfriend asked how old is he and I said 23, I think, older than you but still too young lol.

Bf is also not usually that harsh, he just found the film shallow and silly. I fed him bits of the book as I read it because I thought it was ridiculous and it was pretty much what he expected. He wanted to give it a shot though since it wasn’t his usual thing.

yeah it doesn't seem up my alley. probably will give it a pass for now.

the question remains: how method do you go when portraying someone seeking sexual satisfaction from a peach?

Don’t know about him, but I know of a few people who have done sexy times with fruit unfortunately :unsure:

I thought Little Women was as good as it could have been for what it was. I liked it a lot.

When you say this actor had sex with a fruit in a movie, are you referring to actual fruit (American Pie style?) or slang referring to gay men? If it's the latter, why do you object to the portrayal of homosexual relationships on screen? And if it's the former, which movie was it?

Haha, it's an actual fruit. He uses a peach as a masturbatory aid in Call Me By Your Name.

Huh. I think I'd actually derive more pleasure from just eating the peach, assuming it was in that 20 minutes peak ripeness window.

He might have an adverse reaction to peaches after that though, like Zach Galifianakis did in the brilliant sketch Just 3 Boyz. Back in college he had a bird, the most beautiful bird. He would talk to it, and take it to places with him. But then one day... he walked into his roommate... masturbating with the chicken.
